Apply for additional funds to go abroad

The Research Council of Norway encourages our projects to start international collaborations that contribute to strengthening competence and the internationalization of research. Industrial Ph.D. candidates working abroad for a period are supported with both a personal grant and funding for travel.

Industrial Ph.D. candidate Muhammad Azher Bhatti, and employer and project owner Fatland Ølen AS, chose to take advantage of the additional support for overseas stays. Bhatti and Fatland Ølen are researching the quality and customer experience of Norwegian sheep meat, with a special focus on halal meat.

Speaking to the Australian media outlet The Rural, Bhatti explains that he chose Australia as a host nation as this gave him access to the knowledge and expertise of the Graham Center for Agricultural Innovation at Charles Sturt University (CSU):
- It’s been an opportunity to build my capacity as a researcher, work directly with my Australian supervisors, build networks, and to learn new techniques that I can apply to my research in Norway.

Through the scheme, Bhatti receives a grant (calculated per month) for additional expenses and funding for travel expenses. See links (right side menu) for more information about the personal overseas research grant and the call for proposals.
